According to the federal government, if you think you might have coronavirus, use the self-report tool to find out what to do. And always follow the recommendations of your local public health authority.

“We recommend that passengers self-isolate and watch for symptoms for 14 days after the flight,” the BC CDC said previously.

The announcement of the new cases comes after Air Canada published an open letter requesting that general restrictions and quarantines be replaced by “more proportionate” restrictions to control the spread of the virus, ultimately resulting in a “measured restart of the aviation”.
